TaiwanPlus TV – Secrets of Matsu

In 1997, British photographer Chris Stowers took part in the first artist-in-residence program on Taiwan’s then-highly militarised front line Matsu Islands. In this hour-long documentary aired on the TaiwanPlus TV channel in June 2023, he returns 25 years later to see if some of the people and places he remembers from that first trip are still there … and to discover how much the place has changed in the intervening quarter century.
